Quba Gone Virtual!

Quba Center Gone Virtual – Quran Classes, School and Halaqahs

Assalamu Alaikum Dear Community Members,

We are still suspending group gatherings until further notice at Quba Center. We follow the guidelines and recommendations of the national Islamic organizations and Center for Disease Control (CDC). We will keep monitoring the situation carefully and keep you updated.

Since we are not physically in the center, we want to interact and connect with each other’s virtually. Just like we are working from home and we use the necessary tools to do that, we will also use the necessary technology tools to connect with our community.

*Quran Classes & School*
Our Quran classes led by Sh. Abdelrahman Elridi, already launched their live online classes. Alhamdulilah, We are able to continue teaching Quran to our students.  We have contacted all parents and students have started participating in these virtual sessions.

Preschool, Pre-K and KG are implementing ‘Distance Learning’ program for the young learners, which will include class virtual sessions as well one-on-one virtual sessions for brief time slots along with physical learning material distributed to parents by week.  We have contact all parents.

*Learning Sessions (Halaqas)*
Our Friday halaqah will be broadcasted live on our Facebook page every Friday at 8:00 PM
Our weekend Saturday and Sunday halaqas will continue but at a different time. Weekend halaqas will be at 03:00 PM on Saturday and Sunday.
Saturday halaqa is about early Muslims scholars. Sunday halaqah is about the life of Abu Bakr may Allah be pleased with him.

*Coronavirus Assistance Fund*
As you know, many people around the country lost their jobs. Our community is not an exception. The time of crises is also a time to repent to Allah and to give Sadaqa. We are setting a corona assistance fund to accept your donations and distribute them to people in need.

Please click here to donate to this special fund

If you or anyone you know has lost their job in this time, please direct them to our website to fill out the application form. 

*Stay safe and reflect*
Please stay safe and follow the CDC guidelines, State guidelines, and the direction of county and city government.
Since you cannot go the mosques for prayers, please make a space in your house dedicated for prayers. Pray in congregation with your family and set a specific time for iqama.
Moments like these are a good chance to reflect on reality of death and go back to Allah. Utilize the extra time to increase our religious knowledge and get connected with the Quran.
Please pray sincerely and beg Allah to forgive us and lift this disease from us.

Assalamu Alaikum Dear Community Members,

Acacia Lane Loc. Closed Aug 7

As you probably know there are two major activities within HSQI premises (Acacia Lane); school and masjid. The school is managed and run by HSQI and the masjid services is managed by Quba Center.
Alhamdulilah, the HSQI school is growing and expecting more than 300 students this academic 2018/2019 year starting late August.  Our community and people who attend our regular halaqas are also growing.  As we are growing, it was decided to move the masjid activities from the current location by August 7th.
Starting August 7, Quba Center will no longer manage the masjid activities.
Those activities include:
Saturday Fajr prayer followed by Hadith class and community breakfast, Sunday Fajr prayer followed by Seerah class and community breakfast,  Jummah prayers and food sale, bi-weekly sisters halaqa, and Ramadan services. We are planning to have more halaqas in the future inShaAllah.
As far as Jummah prayers, HSQI will continue Jummah prayers in the current location. So there will be two Jummah’s; one in the current HSQI location and the other in the new location in Ashburn.
We are currently negotiating on few properties in the “broader Ashburn” area and will announce our new location address via WhatsApp group, Facebook, emails, and in our website (www.quba-center.org).
We would like to thank the community for their generous support during our last fundraising in Ramadan. The money collected will be used to rent and operate in the new location. We will continue to need your support now more than ever to support the new location.
If you have questions regarding the HSQI School, you may address them to sheikh Samiullah or Sheikh Burhan.
If you have questions regarding Quba Center, you may address them to any of Quba’s board of directors by using email address below.
Board of Directors,
Quba Center
